The sharing of the unverified dossier to impact the 2016 presidential election will go down as "a very dark stain" on McCain, according to former independent counsel Ken Starr - but President Trump doubled down on the criticism of the late senator in a tweet Saturday, pointing to Sen.
President Trump attacked the late Sen. The View's co-hosts ceded much of the conversation to Meghan McCain, who defended her father's honor, saying that Trump "spends his weekends obsessing over great men" because he knows "he will never" be one.
During the Vietnam War, McCain's plane was shot down, leading to five years as a prisoner of war, with lifelong physical consequences for McCain. The commander-in-chief quoted former U.S. Solicitor General Ken Starr, 72, in his tweet, and insisted Meghan's dad, who served as the U.S. Senator for Arizona from 1987 until his death from cancer in August 2018, had several "stains" in his career.
Meghan received a mix of reactions to her tweet, with many applauding her for defending her father, including one person who noted: "Your Father had more Decency in his Pinky than Trump has in his entire being!"
McCain "had far worse "stains" than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace [Obamacare] after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!", Trump continued.

Trump's tweets are incorrect in multiple ways: Not only did McCain learn about and obtain the dossier several days after Trump's election, Kramer said during a deposition that he - not McCain - was in touch with media outlets concerning the dossier in December, also after Trump's election. "Because Lindsey is crawling to the president so that he can get re-elected, and Trump is acting like a sadist towards Lindsey Graham, putting him between a rock and a hard place and saying, 'OK, bow to me even more now'". During remarks at her father's funeral, she chastised "cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly" and "the opportunistic appropriation of those who live lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served".
On Sunday, Trump referred to the late senator as "last of his class" at the U.S. Naval Academy, and blamed him for allegedly taking part in bringing forth the opposition research document claiming Trump had connections to Russian Federation.
McCain, cohost of "The View" talk show, told a TV audience that Trump, "spends his weekends obsessing over great men because he knows it and I know it and all of you know it - he will never be a great man". In 2015, Trump said McCain was not a war hero.
"My father lives rent free in your head", Megan McCain replied, in a since-deleted tweet.
